Trioculist

A Trioculist from Onslaught.

Trioculists are small insect-like Plasma Minions from Cryos. They attack with melees that cause chain lightning arcs that jumps from opponent to opponent

Lore

Prowling the dark ranges and crevasses of Cryos, Trioculists employ their tails for two deadly functions: night vision for hunting, and plasma-blasting for killing their prey. They are particularly dangerous for their ability to "ricochet" their lightning attack from one target to others, although each ricochet diminishes the voltage.

Strategy

  • Onslaught Variant: Trioculist
  • Triocular Scorpiod, a Special Elite from the Template Challenge
Trioculists are no danger alone, but in groups their chain-lightning attacks can get very annoying. Like most minions, simple attacks kill them quick and easy. Make the job easier by using attacks like Goliath's Arc Weld, to take out groups of these nasty foes easily.

Although close-range can prove as a good strategy, long-range is the best way to deal with Trioculists because they have to get close in order to attack you. Sage's Strangling Briars comes in handy here, and just wait for the approaching Trioculists and shoot at them from afar.
